Research Interests:

HSV-1 is a common infection associated with cold sores and ocular infections that can result in blindness. My laboratory focuses on understanding how HSV-1 infections lead to corneal scarring and blindness in some individuals but not others.  We use a global approach to answer this question, starting at the sensory neuron level so that they can define the mechanisms through which HSV-1 causes ocular pathogenesis.
